Is Your Athlete Getting Enough Fuel to Run the Machine?

If your athlete was showing signs of energy imbalance, would they recognize it? Would you? This is an important topic because athletes who find their "sweet spot" and maintain an energy balance will have an edge, be less at risk for injury and set a foundation for a healthy life. In today huddle, I talk with Rebecca McConville about the topic of Relative Energy Deficit in Sport (or RED-S) We discuss how to be proactive and avoid RED-S so athletes stay in their sweet spot all season long. Rebecca and I discuss... who she is, what she does and why she does it and her book, Finding Your Sweet Spot: How to Avoid RED-S (Relative Energy Deficit in Sport) by Optimizing Your Energy Balance how her personal journey led to her profession as a sports dietitian, specializing in eating disorders. What is RED-S? Why is it important for you and your athlete to know about RED-S? When can an energy imbalance occur? What would cause it? What can we do recognize RED-S in our athletes and what can we do to address it? Why it's important to be intentional about where we get nutrition information for our active kids. Why is consistency so critical to healthy athletes? What Rebecca wants parents and athletes to take away from reading her book? Why talking about injury prevention with your athlete could be a great intro conversation to the importance of energy balance. CONTINUE THE HUDDLE WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU!

What 3 Questions Should Every Sports Parent Ask Their Athlete?

The topic of confidence always seems to surface when taking with other sports parents. How can my athlete be more confident...what about when my athlete loses confidence? But are we even asking the right questions or is there something else we should be asking? In today's huddle, I talk with Kathy Finesteen, a Licensed Mental Health Counselor, and Sports Performance Consultant, about mental health and mental performance, both for our athlete and for ourselves. She gives us very practical ways to increase our own awareness and to help our athlete increase their awareness, too. Kathy and I discuss... who she is, what she does and why she does it. how her daughter's sports performance anxiety (and the lack of resources available) sparked her interest in sport's psychology why self-reflection is the first place for us to start so we can be our best for our athlete. What is a fixed mindset vs a growth mindset? How should we praise our athlete? How do athletes develop confidence? What three questions are important to ask our athlete to help them with confidence? Why is it important for our athletes to see us fail? How her podcast (Season 5) will be a deeper dive into solutions for mental performance. CONTINUE THE HUDDLE WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU!

EPISODE #44 - What Does It Really Take...

WHAT YOU’LL HEAR IN TODAY’S 15-MINUTE HUDDLE: What does it really take to play at the next level? From youth sports to professional sports, every next step requires an athlete to grow and mature. In today's huddle, I talk with Austin McCarthy, who was just named Captain of the Topeka Pilots, a team in the Northern American Hockey League. Austin candidly shares with us his insights into his hockey life as he follows his dream to one day play in the NHL. Austin and I discuss... His journey from Michigan to Kansas to play hockey at the next level. How important his relationship with his sports mom has been in his hockey journey. Why playing for the love of the game has to be a priority to play at the next level. What has surprised him the most about moving to the next levels? What advice he would give to young athletes. Where his hockey skills are taking him (hint: Russia). How important is a pregame routine and how the team talks about the mental side of the game? How the energy/chemistry of the team matters. Meet Austin McCarthy: From his Sports Mama, Erica McCarthy Howe I adore most from Austin is his passion and dedication. I have never in my life seen someone as driven as Austin. He truly gives 1000% always.. he strives to be the best he can be and he pushes himself beyond what I could ever do or what I would ever expect him to do... He is conscious of his health from what he eats and drinks to his workouts and skates. Every day he amazes me! He has had several hardships and struggles, but he is always determined to become better and stronger. When Austin was 10, I remember saying in an interview about him that I see anything is possible for him...I think he can do anything he puts in mind to and that he's an amazing kid. I'm just so proud to be his Mom! CONTINUE THE HUDDLE WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU!

Do You Know Your Athlete's Triggers?

Do you know your athlete's triggers? What makes them anxious? Are you saying or doing things that actually hurt them when your intentions are to help? In today's huddle, I talk with Teisha Womack, who played college basketball at Seton Hall and then professionally in Poland. She went on to get her Master's in Sports Psychology and now works with athletes on improving their mental skills. This is a conversion you don't want to miss and you'll want to pass along to other sports mamas and their athletes. Teisha Womack and I discuss... Who she is, what she does and why she does. How her "nervous energy" as a teenager affected her as an athlete and how she even though she did well, she struggled with the anxiety. How her brain would shut down once she reached a level that was "unknown" to her. How we think becomes our behavior and can lead to physical injury. How important the mental skills game is and that most kids don't even know that it's a thing that can be "worked on" The concerns when an injury occurs and how to handle the mental recovery while physically recovering. The mind and body connection and why building awareness is the first step. How to get in touch with your athletes "triggers" so that you don't make the situation worse for them.

What Type of Sports Parent Are YOU?

Nick and I discuss... Who he is, what he does and why he does it. Why he started The Reformed Sports Parent platform and when he realized he needed to change. How being vulnerable with his boys was a turning point. When he realized it was more about him than his kids he realized he needed to step back and make some changes. How he reached out to others to see if others were feeling like this and so many others were at very high levels. Why parents are feeling the pressure of the pay-to-play and what we can do What should parents focus on? Are sports parents chasing the wrong things in youth sports? Why facing our own heart-posture and setting our ego aside is the place to start with changing the youth sports culture.

Is Yelling and Screaming at Athletes the Best Way to Coach or Parent?

Does yelling at athletes prepare them well for the world after sports? Does it really" toughen them up"? Is this the best way to coach/parent? In today's huddle, I bring back J.P. Nerbun, a mentor, writer, coach, and sports consultant. who is, most importantly, I am a husband and father. We talk about what happens when we lead with love, both as a coach and parent, and some practical ways we can change the default response from yelling and screaming to setting high standards and leading with love. JP and I discuss... Are we asking the right questions about how we coach and parent? And what are those questions we should be asking ourselves? Why we shouldn't yell at our athletes and how it's not congruent with leadership in the real world. How our brains work and how we can help our kids/athletes to use their WHOLE brain. Why we want to "engage not enrage their brain" and how to activate connections that strengthen their whole brain. Connect first with your athlete and let them know you see them and understand before telling them what you think they should do. How can you retrain the way we operate? How we can have high standards and still operate and lead with love. Why a parent or coach has to start with their own heart first. Do you see the child as a problem or a person? Can we shift from"how do they serve me" to "how can I serve them?" CONTINUE THE HUDDLE WE LOVE HEARING FROM YOU!

EPISODE #37 - What Happens When Your Athlete Doesn't Eat Properly?

She also was Sporting KC's first sports dietitian. Listen in for her great tips and tools! Amy tells us... About her food philosophy: Eat whole foods which means food that grows and dies. Why we are not meant to eat all the processed foods, artificial ingredients, and preservatives. Why food is not just fuel...it's information for our body.
